By exotic fruits, we generally and historically mean these fruits that originate in areas with a radically different climate compared to the European continent.
Many of these exotic fruits, famous for their nutritional properties and intense taste, such as bananas and pineapples, have become widespread food far beyond the tropical countries for several years. Others like avocados have recently seen an increasingly steady rise in consumer preferences and use.
Avocado is undoubtedly one of the most rapidly spreading fruit in recent years, both terms of production and consumption.
We load Avocados both by air and by sea. Novafruit always uses highly selected partners with whom we have established an excellent and fruitful collaboration over time. It has allowed us to obtain excellent results for our producers and customers.
We mainly load avocados from Peru and recently developed new partnerships with California, Mexico, Kenya and Tanzania. This last location’s absolute value ensures avocados’ production from January to August.
We can pack in boxes of 10 kgs and 4 kgs net. In this way, the products can compete even with Mexican ones. In this case, in addition to good quality, another advantage concerns the seasonality of Tanzania, which anticipates that of Kenya.
Thanks to this reliable network, we can supply and serve our customers all year round according to their needs, with high-quality products and the longest possible seasonality.
Novafruit can also offer an organic product that retains good organoleptic properties, excellent creaminess and a good seal.
Our main target markets are China, the Middle East, Singapore and Malaysia, ensuring care and freshness of the fruit at all stages of shipments.

Pineapple is a fruit of plants of the Bromeliaceae family, originally typical of South America since the times of the Maya and Aztecs. It is famous for its taste, juiciness and diuretic, digestive and anti-inflammatory properties. The native used to call this fruit nana, Portuguese settlers anananz, from which the Italian name ananas comes. Instead, the Spanish used to call it piña, and this last ending comes from the English name pineapple.
For years, we have collaborated with professionals of the highest profile who cultivate and select exotic fruits with great flavour and exquisite sweetness. Novafruit can supply this fruit all year round from Ecuador and Costa Rica. Costa Rica, in particular, is among the world’s largest producers.
Above all, we offer an ultra-sweet “ready-to-eat” pineapple for air cargo. We harvested this product in such a way as to obtain the highest possible concentration of sugars. We offer 12 g net packages for these fruits, 5/6 fruit per package.
Banana, a fruit of ancient origins estimated to be around 7000 BC in New Guinea, has been one of the favourite fruit foods all over the planet for just over 50 years, even among the five most consumed, thanks to its unmistakable flavour, its nutritional and energetic values and properties.
As Novafruit, we are committed to loading high-quality bananas directly from the best producers in Central and South America, especially from Ecuador and Costa Rica.
